I'm excited for Cloak & Dagger because of the thing it's going to become, the dance the characters are beginning to choreograph around each other -- the anticipation and the narrative tension.
June 6, 2018
Cloak and Dagger suffers from what many of the other Marvel shows do: it's too sluggish in its story pace and the plot falls by the wayside.

June 7, 2018
The premiere mistakes the details of its characters' backstory for propulsive storytelling, and in doing so begins long before the story actually starts.
June 5, 2018
[Marvel's Cloak & Dagger] isn't sharp enough to draw blood.
June 7, 2018
Their journey should be thrilling, fascinating. It's a chore.

Cloak & Dagger is letting its protagonists develop a different dynamic, with help from the unique link between their minds.

[The] supporting cast also gets an upgrade.... while each of these tweaks is relatively minor on its own, all together they put the series in a much better position to succeed than a direct adaptation would.
June 22, 2018
Cloak & Dagger is intriguing and a perfect start to another Marvel show. The twists and turns will keep fans coming back for more week after week.

There are outlines of a lot of very good ideas but none of them are quite fleshed out - yet. So far, Cloak & Dagger is strictly OK.
June 4, 2018
Cloak & Dagger is a well-crafted, captivating nightmare. A harrowing story aboutthe limits of the human breaking point.
June 29, 2018
Cloak & Dagger had a strong opening, and I can't wait to see where this slow-burn of a series goes.
June 8, 2018
Cloak & Dagger is also something we haven't seen from Marvel in years: a canon without the baggage of legions of fans, expectations, and pre-loaded storylines.

May 30, 2018
The show is about race, class, police violence, corruption, and even faith, with the superhero stuff as window dressing. That's both the strength and weakness of the show.
July 16, 2018
The violence, drug use and occasional language may draw an eyebrow from some parents. But, "Marvel's Cloak & Dagger" shows potential to be a strong voice for what concerns the upcoming generation, while still providing entertaining superhero action.
June 7, 2018
In a media market filled with caped crusaders, Cloak & Dagger still manages to stand out by breaking the rules for what it means to be a superhero.
July 16, 2018
And while we're only two episodes in, it seems as though Cloak & Dagger is shaping up to be one of [Marvel's] best tales to date.
May 24, 2018
Cloak & Dagger isn't exactly a show for die-hard comic book purists looking for a live-action translation of the superheroes they love, but that ultimately works out in its favor because that's not what it's trying to be.
June 7, 2018
All [the] ponderousness is executed with a confidence and skill that promises a satisfying first season, and one I think you should give a shot. Let Marvel's and Freeform's kid sibling shine its own light (and shadow).
Full Review | Original Score: 8.6/10
May 31, 2018
This storytelling method sets the show apart from the rest of the pack of Marvel television and even television in general. It's weird. It's trippy. And it's great. You probably haven't seen TV like this before.
May 25, 2018
Tackling a variety of relatable subjects while embracing the thrill of discovering new powers, Cloak & Dagger delivers an emotionally honest and surprisingly resonant premiere.
